Twisted Impressions #20

Is it wrong that I totally get a creepy sexual vibe from this innocent picture from 1978?  Have I just become so jaded that I can't look at kids admiring a phallus rocket and not chuckle like a depraved moron?  Tell me I'm not alone.

Here's a few more "innocent" photos that awaken my inner-degenerate.,,,

Picturing People by Don Nibbelink, 1976


  1. Not alone at all. It's still hard to beat (ba-dupp kshshs!) the Chiquita banana ad from a previous TI.

    BTW, I loved "In the News", especially their music. Christopher Glenn's voice was also kinda entrancing. I wonder if there's enough back story or trivia about that series to make a post for you.

    Hammer n' Sickle? Is this a dig at the arms race during the cold war? My hunch is that's Suzy Parker in the RC Cola ad.

  3. Yawn. No, you're not alone, like 99.99% of everybody, you see a rocket as a penis, a balloon as a boob, blah blah. I had a Saturn V rocket model as a kid in the '70s and that never entered my mind at all – Ha! I was so stupid back then. Everyone's so much brighter now.

  4. Sorry Gilligan, but sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.
